The company has maintained its technological leadership throughout the years and this vital effort is no exception. Indeed, the firm adopted a number of proactive innovations to optimize the productivity of its rigs as well as increase safety, dependability, operational execution and efficiency.

Transocean will meet the lowered emission-intensity objective without jeopardizing its safety and operational integrity records. Its duty as an industry leader extends beyond producing exceptional results for its clients. Management believes that the company must continue to provide services in a way that has low adverse effects on the environment and in doing so, serves the interests of all its stakeholders including workers, customers, investors and also caters to the general welfare of the public.

Nowadays, most of the energy needed to power Transocean's global fleet of high-capability drilling rigs comes from diesel fuel conversion to electricity. As a result, the firm is committed to reducing emissions throughout its fleet via fuel savings and other measures, which may be accomplished by creating and deploying new procedures and technologies that allow it to maximize its power-control capabilities.

The company is likewise dedicated to using its resources and skills in favor of its clients' lower carbon-energy initiatives, which may include carbon capture and sequestration.
